April 2020: COVID 19 Updates from Families Outside

Our colleagues, Families Outside, have published their April Newsletter.

The Newsletter covers topics such as Frequently Asked Questions about prisons and COVID19 and the input for families affected by imprisonment of the new Coronavirus (Scotland) Act 2020; Scottish prisoners potentially receiving mobile phones to contact loved ones; changes to the Home Detention Curfew (tagging) system.

There are also some Frequently Asked Questions answered on the Scottish Prison Service website along with details of the new online banking system to put money in to people’s prison accounts.
